The Met Office has issued two weather warnings for Suffolk with strong wind and rain set to hit in the next few days.
The first warning is a yellow warning for heavy rain and covers the far west of the region.
It came into force at midnight and will be in place until tomorrow morning.
"A band of heavy rain followed by heavy showers or thunderstorms has the potential to bring disruption," said the Met Office.
During these hours the Met Office warned that there is a potential for some flooding and spray on roads.
On Saturday the whole county, as well as much of the south of England, is covered by another yellow warning, this time for wind.
The Met Office's warning read: "Strong winds are expected to cause some disruption, particularly during Saturday daytime."
